#bookreview … Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (kindle edition) 

Not so long ago I finished reading this book and I wanted to review it for so long, but I didn’t know how to put it in words. The thing is, this book had such a high impact on me because the things happening in it are actually happening in real life, every single day! And most of us, including me, don’t do anything to stop it! So this is not a professional review, it’s just the impact that the book had on me. 

Clay Jensen received some tapes from a girl that was going to school with him but that committed suicide. As he listens to her tapes, he realizes that there were so many occasions in which he could have helped her but he didn’t. The fact is, that he would have probably not make her change her mind, but the fact that he didn’t try really gets to him. 

Isn’t that what most of us do? See the signs but we say nothing? We turn our eyes and pretend like nothing happened? Tell people to just get over stuff? Tell them that life sucks? Yup, we do that! We don’t realize however, that our actions are actually making other people suffer. And than are those that do realize but don’t care! 

This book made me cry several times! Brought sad and heavy, heartbreaking memories! But made me realize that I must be careful with what I say or do, because there is no such thing as ‘exaggerating people’ only ‘sensitive people’! And there is nothing wrong with being sensitive!

Thanks for reading!

#bookreview …La Liste – By Jérémy Demay – A list of 10 books to help ourlife

Jérémy Demay is a French comedian that arrived in Quebec, Canada 10 years ago. He came with a dream, and without friends and family, so far away from home, he had to fight to achieve it. He wanted to be a famous comedian. Unfortunately, not long after his arrival, Jérémy Demay suffered from depression. Realizing that something has to change in his life, he started to work on himself and after a lot of suffering and hard work he finally managed to see the light. He is now living his dream. He decided to share with his audience things that helped him improved and things that helped him with his depression.

I received this book as a Christmas present from one of my dearest family members and I thank him for giving me this book.

In his book La Liste, Jérémy Demay shares techniques to improve our own self and books that one should read in order to be able to do so. I will list all the books (that I added on my To Read goodreads account) because I want as well to improve my person. I want to be able to live for myself and not care what people around me say or think about me. I want too to live my dreams and I want to fight for them, but I feel sometimes this urge to give up, for no specific reason; from fear. Here are the books that  Jérémy Demay suggests we should read in order to improve and grow as a person:

1. The Artist’s Way, A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity ‘s Way – Julia Cameron

615570

2. Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

Reflechissez Et Devenez Riche / Think and Grow Rich [Translated] (French Edition) by [Hill, Napoleon]

3. You’ll See It When You Believe It – Wayne Dyer

22317716

4. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind – Dr. Joseph Murphy

5. The Science of Being Great – Wallance D. Wattles

1880165

6. The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence – Deepak Chopra

137038

7. Daily Love – Mastin Kipp

23212761

8. Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

28167949

9. Stillness Speak – Eckhart Tolle

912427

10. Les mots sont des fenêtres (ou des murs) – Marshall B. Rosenberg

22631906

If you are struggling in your life and you don’t know in which direction to go, if you wonder how to find your inner peace, if you want to live a happy and a quiet life, I hope these books will help you as they helped Jérémy Demay. I really want to make some changes in my life so all the above books are added to my list and I will read them one by one and work hard to achieve the life that I want. Just remember: There is no such thing as too hard or too late! If you want it (with all your heart and mind) you will have it!

I do recommend this book and 5 stars are a must ❤!

10 #books for a bookworm

With the winter holidays around the corner, we always wonder what could be the perfect gift. If you are like me and you buy your stuff whenever you need them, than you are hard to shop for. Some people might think that something that represents Christmas is the way to go because what else could you buy to someone that already has everything they need, right? My answer would be: not exactly. If someone has the pleasure to buy me something, I suggest something that I might actually use and enjoy.

I’m a bookworm and everyone around me knows it. I find that the bookworms are the easiest people to shop for. Here is a list of books that I would love to have and I am pretty sure other bookworms might enjoy:

  1. Spilled Milk: Based on a true story – by K.L Randis

18858489

2. A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story – by Linda Sue Park

7981456

3. Paperboy – by Vince Vawter

15797693

4. One Crazy Summer Paperback – by Rita Williams-Garcia

13639804

5. The One and Only Ivan – by Katherine Applegate

11594337

6. You Will Not Have My Hate – by Antoine Leiris

29639954

7. The Best Kind of People – by Zoe Whittall

29220492

8. The Couple Next Door – by Shari Lapena

28815474

9. Safe With Me – by K.L. Slater

31489055

10. The Sister – by Louise Jensen

29920081

Conclusion: If you have to shop for a bookworm you can always give them a book. Like this, you know that you really made them happy. 🙂

Piece of advice: Before shopping online always make sure that you choose the correct format as books come in different forms: paperback, hardcover, for kindle and audio.

Enjoy the books and Happy Reading! 🙂
